Honeymoon in ThailandWords by Melissa Klurman
Bangkok is the bustling epicenter of shopping, culture, food and fun in Southeast Asia. It’s also a bit of a frenetic scene, with ancient golden temples and modern mega malls sharing space with skyscrapers and what seems like a million cars and wild three-wheeler tuk-tuks, so having the right hotel to call home, with all the comforts and perks you want right at your fingertips, can often make or break your city visit. Luckily, we’ve found a hotel for every style for your honeymoon in Thailand.
The Anantara Bangkok Riverside offers a lush tropical resort right on the banks of the scenic Chao Phraya River. The water theme extends to the lushly landscaped pool and patio bar where you can sip a tropical cocktail on a comfy chaise lounge surrounded by palm trees. Explore the water even more on a private Streetwise Guru longtail klong (canal) tour, cruise the river on a Manohra dinner excursion on an antique barge or hop on the complimentary shuttle to explore the riverside night market.
The chic AVANI Riverside Bangkok is where to find cutting edge style and design. This sleek high-rise’s modern rooms have sleek furnishings, including egg-shaped tubs big enough for two and top-of-the-line tech. The views from the Attitude Restaurant on the 26th floor feel like you’re floating over the City of Angels or dancing on a cloud when the DJ starts to spin. Also, the rooftop infinity pool is one of the hippest see-and-be-seen spots in town.

At the center of the city is the sophisticated Anantara Siam Bangkok, an elegant, landmark historic hotel near some of Bangkok’s most exclusive shopping. The lobby’s elaborately painted mural and silk ceilings create a rich jewel-box for sophisticated drinks or step out into the open-air dining atrium for stylish Thai at Spice Market or refined bites at Aqua. Don’t miss a chance to relax at the sybaritic Anantara Spa where pampering is always in style.
